Trick or Treat - October 25th 2008



Trick or treat in my neighborhood fell on my 12th Wedding anniversary this year, which I admit annoyed me at first. Those emotions quickly retreated once we hit the annual trick-or-treat trail.

Along for the ride: my four, Lisa, our friend Chris and her three kids, along with their father, and my sister C and my niece.

Nighttime trick or treat is *not* the norm in Milwaukee, but it is allowed in my neighborhood. It's still new enough to me that the novelty hasn't worn off. It's a whole different atmosphere than daytime trick-or-treat, although it has its drawbacks too - grumpy little kids out past their bedtime, increased danger from passing cars, and, of course, Ghouls

Here's some pics of the walk:

Smiley loved his outfit btw, choosing it over an assortment of options. It was hard to find in his size, so I'm glad his affection for it didn't wear off.

Note: this isn't me in this pic. It's another bearded overweight guy in a green pullover. Seriously.

Along the way we ran into a school friend of LuLu's

The temperature dropped at the same time the sun did, but we made do:

This past Friday their school held their annual Halloween Social, which we'd intended to become an anual tradition. Unfortunately Lu was sticken with a fever and couldn't go, so Lisa, YaYa, and my niece KayKay went by themselves:

I think having a great evening with you wife and kids is a great way to spend your anniversary.

I love the Spider Hat by the way :o)

Could not help but notice an Obama sign on your walk, but no McCain ones... Just teasing!

Thanks for sharing pictures of your Halloween.

Great pics! Looks like it was quite the motley crew!

I hope you and Lisa will be able to celebrate your anniversary another night. Nothing wrong with a little delayed gratification! :)
